Only five units of the Ultimate Aero XT supercar will be produced, according to the SSC North America. The exclusive edition will feature many key characteristics from the hyper-powerful Tuatara supercar. The American auto manufacturer plans to end the production of the Ultimate Aero, so the XT model is the final production run of the lineup.
The heart of the Ultimate Aero XT is a twin-turbocharged, dual-intercooled aluminum block V8 engine. SSC claim the XT is capable of 1,300 horsepower. The powerplant is mated to a paddle shift-operated seven-speed gearbox.
The unique exterior paint schemes used in the SSC Ultimate Aero XT limited edition will never be used again by SSC. The exclusive car is fitted with a 44/56 front-to-rear weight distribution, and runs on 19×9.5-inch alloy wheels, and Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tyres.
SSC Announces Limited Production of Five Ultimate Aero XT’s
WEST RICHLAND, WA (08/02/2012)
SSC North America, the American supercar manufacturer and creator of the Guinness World Record breaking Ultimate Aero, is proud to offer a very “Limited Edition” of the Ultimate Aero to enthusiasts worldwide. This limited, extreme edition will utilize some key assemblies that will be featured in the upcoming revolutionary Tuatara.
“The demand for us to deliver additional Ultimate Aero’s has been overwhelming,” says Jerod Shelby, Founder, Lead Designer and CEO of SSC. “We have just raised the bar again by adding some of the cutting-edge elements from our Tuatara, to this very small production run of Ultimate Aero XT’s.”
These five very unique, collectable Ultimate Aeros will be classified as the 2013 Ultimate Aero XT. Each 2013 Ultimate Aero XT will feature a 1300 horsepower version of the Tuatara power plant, 7-speed Tuatara paddle shift and the Tuatara cooling, fuel and braking systems.
The aggressive paint scheme with colors chosen by the customer will never be used again on an Ultimate Aero or American supercar. It certainly will stand apart from any other Ultimate Aero in the market today.
After the 5 limited edition Ultimate Aero XT’s are sold, production of the Ultimate Aero will permanently conclude.
